how to trap a bat inside your house

First of all, bats should never trap bats in the house but should always lead it outside by opening up windows and closing all the other doors behind them to provide the bat with a single escape route. Make sure that the bat is handled properly as local law dictates those bats in their maternity season, bad weather, and mid-winter. The best way to go about this is to contact your local bat control that are licensed and insured specialists
